Majid Kafi joined the ON Semiconductor Analog Solution Group (ASG) in late August, 2015 to start a new BU with focus on “System Power Solutions”. With that focus he has created two design centers in Europe and Silicon Valley to support Design, Application, Product, Test and Marketing engineering while generating a new business and product strategy to address a broad market from low power wearable application to automotive markets. The solutions covers such technologies, like wireless charging, High Frequency multiphase controllers, fast charging, and highly integrated PMICs.
He has more than three decades of experience in the electronics industry. During his career, Mr. Kafi has held various engineering, marketing and product line management positions and responsibilities. Additionally, he started up semiconductor related company, TekMate Engineering, to design and manufacture custom test and burn-in boards for the semiconductor industry before later selling it and returning to the corporate world.
Prior to joining ON Semiconductor in 2015, Mr. Kafi was the Senior Director of Global Marketing and Business Development, Analog/Power Division at Integrated Device Technology (IDT).
He is the co-author of a patent that improves charging schemes for both conventional and NVDC systems. New circuit provides users a simplified total solution. It enables two functions to be combined into new chip, saving bill of material costs while enhancing performance. Patent is currently pending.
Mr. Kafi has a bachelors and masters of science degrees in electrical engineering from San Jose State University as well as an MBA in strategic marketing from National University.
